Harder than it seems...

Tuesday, February 14, 2012

Here it is, half way through February and I feel as though I've fallen off the wagon again. Jan 29th I weighed in and had lost 3 pounds. Feb 5th I weighed in and stayed the same, didn't gain but didn't lose either. But that weekend I also made cupcakes for 2 different events, and all last week I've been having about a cupcake a day (stupid leftovers I didn't get out of the house). I also majorly slacked on my workouts, and didn't even dare to weigh in on the 12th (I try to weigh in each Sunday afternoon for consistancy).

Yesterday I didn't work out either, but did make the choice to have a subway sandwich instead of eating at a pizza buffet. VERY good choice there. I will be taking a walk with my husband and my dog tonight, and plan to work out as well.

I suppose it's all a matter of balance. I need to put in the effort to lose the weight, and need to work it in to where it's a lifestyle change, not just something temporary to try to drop a few pounds. I'm also trying hard to eat healthy, which isn't bad most of the time, but there are times I find myself holding an empty cupcake wrapper and wondering how it got in my hand... scary.

At least I have no temptation from V-day candy (we don't bother to celebrate it), and the cupcakes are gone... maybe this week can be a healthier one than last week at least.

    Yes, balance.

    Sounds like you need something else to be excited about. Find a new recipe on SparkRecipes and make it one day this week. Or buy a fruit/veggie you've never had before and try it.

    Set a goal to work out "x" times or for "x" minutes this week and see if you meet your goal.

    You have not given up on yourself. You now know you are the only one that can make it happen for you.

    You have the power to succeed or fail.

    You have chosen to succeed.

    Few baby steps complete a long journey

    Writing is progress!!!
